“Some pastors have gone so far as to paint candidates they oppose as demonic.”
Jeremy Schwartz and Jessica Priest, “IRS Ignores Church Endorsements,” The Eagle [Bryan-College Station, Texas] (Oct. 31, 2022)
And some journalists have also gone so far as to paint candidates they oppose as racists! The quote is from a hand-wringing article at the top of the front page of today’s newspaper. The article originated with the Texas Tribune and ProPublica, a pair of shills for the oligarchic Leviathan that rules the world. The Texas Tribune, for instance, is a free on-line publication that is exempt from “market forces” because tycoons and non-profits foot the bills. ProPublica is another establishment front that attempts to influence public opinion by, among other things, its “Documenting Hate” project. Begun in 2017, this “Documenting Hate” project uses machine learning to trawl the internet for “Hate.” In partnership with information Behemoth Google, “Documenting Hate” produces a “Documenting Hate Index” that, like Google stock, just goes up.
According to the article in this morning’s newspaper, this rag-tag rabble of tycoons, non-profits and mega-corporations is ready for a showdown with paranoid power-freaks like Brandon Burden, pastor of the KingdomLife Church in Frisco, a Dallas suburb. We are told that, “grasping his Bible” (I thought the style manual states that Bibles are “clutched”), Pastor Burden told his congregation “that demonic spirits were operating through members of the City Council,” thereby allegedly violating the 1954 “Johnson Amendment” (Pastor Brandon was in violation, not the demonic spirits). This Amendment, the shilling authors tell us, bars “churches and non-profits [ahem!] from directly or indirectly participating in political campaigns.”
Indeed this is what “tax law experts told ProPublica and The Texas Tribune,” a pair of non-profits that do nothing other than participate in political campaigns. I daresay Pastor Burden officiates at an occasional wedding and funeral, and that his sermons fairly often touch on questions other than the demonic spirits that operate through the Frisco City Council (which I, by the way, implicitly believe on first principles).
I often write about “the Beast,” “Leviathan,” or “That Hideous Strength.” Well here it is in its everyday operation. Oligarchs and leftists operating through fronts like The Texas Tribune and ProPublica and accusing their enemies of doing what they are themselves doing, grasping their megaphones and telling their congregants that the SPIRIT OF HATE is operating through the dirty peasants who stand in their way.

Immediately below the hand-wringer about demon-haunted Pastor Burden is another hand-wringer with this remarkable connect-the-dots title. Although the zip ties were carried by an attacker in far-away San Francisco and the Pelosi in question is not a politician, journalist Mascaro, sleuth-like, went to U.S. Capitol Police Chief J. Thomas Manger for the scoop. Manger tells her that the “attack” “is a somber reminder of the threats elected officials and families face in 2022.” That calumny is a Mark of the Beast, my friends—A Mark of the Beast!
